      That is so true, not to mention the low pay. They can’t keep good employees because of those reasons.

    Only four counts of endangerment? My kids rode the bus that day and was dropped off by her before she ever went to middle school. I know there were way more than four kids on that bus.

    Let’s don’t throw stones, we all have things that we are not proud of. I know this family, and they are very sweet children. This child is only coming to his Mother’s defense. I know, I would! Please do not judge, because God is our judge. We need to pray for her children and family. STOP!all this gossip and bad comments. These children are hurting and need our support rather than talking trash about their Mother. As far as the Lowndes County Sheriff’s department, I think her children should have been taken inside the school at the time of the arrest. These children did not need to see their mother in handcuffs!
